  1. Application Insights multiple environment feature

    Add possibility to create under one Application Insights more environments (every environment could have own instrumentation key). The main reason is the clarity and the ability to compare the environment.

    - MyWebsiteAppInsights
    - production
    - stage
    - dev
    - Another Insights
    - production
    - local

  2. Support JSON schema style $ref components in templates

    Idempotent JSON based resource manager templates are a great idea. However, sophisticated deployments use numerous sub-components over and over. JSON schema understands this is a requirement for building real world JSON where elements repeat in different places, and has a $ref mechanism - like the variables and parameters, but a way to define a JSON object and use it elsewhere, repeatedly.

    This would allow, for example, a security rule to be defined in one place, and used in several NSGs.

    Consider, for example, a classic three tier DMZ, App Server and DB Server Zone, implemented with NSGs. The zones clearly…

  3. Support for Golang (Go) SDK for Azure

    AWS is supporting an SDK for 'Go' language. A lot of new app development is happening in Go.

  4. Allow students to deploy virtual machines for free (to an extent)

    I believe that students should have the ability to use higher level features, like deploying virtual machines and document storage systems for free to a point.
    You could restrict it to allowing a limited number of machines overall, and force them to be in a specific pricing block, like the lowest tier. A similar system could be applied to document storage systems.
    This would allow students to deploy systems in a test environment and practice configuring them in a system where they could access it at any given time. And not be restricted to hardware that they have laying around.

  5. Create an application or Tool for Migrating users from Azure AD to Local AD

    There should be an option that allow us to import users from Azure with all their attributes and write them back in a local environment. I can bet their have been businesses that for some reason, lost their Local environment (a malware attack), and would like to re-create the environment using what Azure Stored for them

  6. Recovery Services needs a way to migrate to a new vCenter

    We recently ran into a situation where we upgraded our on-prem vCenter by standing up a new server and migrating resources to that. However after doing so we discovered that it is not possible to "migrate" systems replicated in Recovery services to that new server. Instead we have to delete them and then re-replicate from scratch.

    Having a way to update a replicated system in recovery services, changing it from one vCenter server to another would be extremely helpful!

  7. Allow other options to authenticate calls to a webhook from Alerts

    Presently, it is only possible to call a webhook from an Azure Alert by providing a URL, and thus only allowing the passage of a security key via a query string parameter. This is bad security practice since the URL can be logged in plain text on web servers. Please provide an option to add additional data to the body of a POST/PUT webhook call so we can pass sensitive information safely

  8. Clearly indicate when the customer is committing to pay

    I was charged a third-party service fee during a free trial. While I don't object to paying for the software, I was surprised by the charge, because the Azure console did not explain clearly I was committing to an ongoing fee and ask approval for that charge.

    Azure needs to be transparent in pricing, including Azure fees and third-party fees to assess the true TCO for a cloud service. Show a complete fee schedule for the configuration and allow a review and Accept Transaction step before charging a customer.

  11. Create a tier that only charges for CPU cycles used, not idle cycles

    Many instances are mostly idle; and surely your underlying VM technology can use those idle cycles for running other people's jobs.

    Instead of charging for the idle CPU cycles, create a pricing tier that charges more for CPU cycles that are actually used, and less for ones where machines are idle.

    This would be useful for very bursty workloads.

    Currently it is impossible to delete batch triggers by design and it is necessary to recreate Logic Apps once. Please be sure to be able to delete batch trigger like other connectors.

    現在、設計上、バッチトリガーを削除することはできません、一度Logic Appsの再作成が必要です。他のコネクターと同様にバッチトリガーも削除できますようにしてください

  15. Redhat Hardened Machine Image

    Hi Azure,

    It's tough for every Linux user to the hardened machine for compliance purpose. Why it is not possible for Redhat and Microsoft to get an image which is already hardened by Redhat according to any compliance. It would be great for the financial company to get those image and deploy instantly rather invest your time on hardening each and everything on redhat machine.

  16. deletion of integrated account link with logic apps

    Deletion of link of integrated account is operated from Azure Resource Explorer, However, I think that all resource management should be done from the portal. Please make it possible to delete link of integrated account from Azure portal as well.

  17. have an option whereby you do not require credit card verification- there are countries where they don't exist.

    Some countries' policies disallow the use of credit cards, and in those countries (e.g. my country Ethiopia) the .net environment is predominantly popular among developers. So I suggest you provide for a signup offer with out the credit card verification step.

  18. You talk about a free Azure plan to test and develop for a single developer, yet you provide ZERO links to get started with a free account.

    Please make available a CLEAR way to start the free account you offer. I have tried following the multiple links you provide to get started with an Azure account, and NONE of them give an option to start with a free account.
